Renee Fleming, Columbus Symphony concert a night of wonderful music

4 min read

After 18 months of apprehension and uncertainty, of living with mandates and questions, we’re ready for things to go back to normal. We’re ready to venture out again. And the Columbus Symphony, kicking off its 70th season Saturday night, presented a concert — or, more of a pastiche — of fun, interesting, short works that were exactly what a world-weary audience needed.

Prior to the concert, the ticket lines outside the Ohio Theatre moved smoothly, even with the added step requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test before entering the building. It seemed that, with a mostly older audience, this was a new experience, but most of the occasional confusion seemed to concern showing a photo ID that matched the name on the vaccination card.
